to ireland, jean kennedy smith, who was essential enraging piece. and senator edward kennedy, the longest-serving senator at his death in the united states senate. the story of joseph kennedy is the story of the man who spent his life moving back and forth from outsider to insider and back into outsider insider. story of an irish catholic who is not ashamed of his irish heritage, but refused to be defined by it. he was a third generation immigrant. his parents had been born in the united states. his grand parents had come here when they were young people. joseph kennedy cared little about the countries whose grandparents had been born in. he had no desire to visit ireland or read about it. he was 100% american. and he couldn't quite understand why anyone would think of him as less than 100% american. his anger was the catholic church growing up. being irish catholic in boston, he needed an anchor. he was born in east boston is kind of local royalty. everyone knew his mother's family and his father's family and his father was a well-known prominent awesome politician and very well respecte
. but in fact it was the nurse. she worked at king edward hospital for four years. listen now to the hospital. >> the hospital had been supporting her through this very difficult time. she was a first class nurse who cared diligently for hundreds of patients during her time with us. >> reporter: when those two deejays were first making their phone call they had no idea that neither of them would get through. they had a horrible accent, and they thought that everybody else was trying the same prank. listen now to how this whole thing began. play this. >> hello, good morning,. >> hello there, could i please speak to kate, please my granddaughter. >> yes, just hold on, ma'am. >> thank you. >> are they putting us through? >> yes. [laughter] >> reporter: they were then transferred to the nurse who went onto give a very detailed update on kate's status. out of respect for the nurse we are not going to play that audio. the hospital as you might imagine was irate, the queen was not happy, and the australian radio station apologized that station by the way is already on probation for airing three othe
for the victims. listen to this tape. >> hello. good morning, king edward vii. >> hello, there. can i please speak to kate, my granddaughter. >> are they putting us through? >> yes. >> i mean, absolutely unbelievable. so, kate middleton, or the duchess of cambridge, as she is now, is in hospital with this morning sickness, having revealed she's progress. and some dumb aussie deejay rings up with a twang accent. and they think it's the queen of england. i feel personally affronted. alan dershowitz, have you ever heard anything so ludicrous? >> it's the worst imitation i've ever heard. >> ever. there's a corgi in the background. >> i thought it was you. >> deejays are allowed to be ridiculous and funny. of all of the problems in the world this, is not the most serious one. >> carol, quickly. >> they're the ones that were dumb. they put the call through. >> i don't blame the nurse. i don't blame the nurse talking to them. she had been put through by the receptionist, with the immortal words, the queen's on the phone. what are you supposed to say? >> i think it's innocent. it gave us a laugh today. >>
, and that is why it was felt at this early stage of the pregnancy that she had to go to the king edward xii's hospital for several days. the prince is delight. no doubt prime ministers of realms from your end of the world to mine will be saying similar in the hours ahead, michael. >> of course, apart from that, everybody loving a prince and princess appropriating, i suppose. the other more political side tv from the royal family's point of view isn't all about succession, is it? >> completely, totally, and utterly. this is about who will be on the throne after william. we go from the queen, who is at the moment, to charles, the prince of wales, to william the duke of cambridge, and after william it will be the child. now, here's the interesting thing. whoever or whatever sex is born, the law that is are now being prom you will gated come to fruition, which it will, whether it's a girl or a boy, they will become monarch. the current rule is, of course, the males first. even if a female is born, if a male is born, knocks the female out of the line of succession. that is going to change. now,
of the greatest statesmen of all times. in 1954 edward r. murrow the cbs newsman said he mobilized the english language and sent it into battle. president kennedy liked the quote so much that he used it as his own. that was in 1963 when he granted winston churchill honorary citizenship of the united states. >> pierpont morgan was a friend of churchill's mother and is likely that winston on one of his many trip to its united states would have visited this library. we're joined today by alan packwood, he is the director of the churchill archive center in cambridge. and he's cure rating an exhi business here at the morgan called winston churchill, the power of words. >> what you're looking at here are two images taken by the famous photographer on the 30th of december 1941. winston churchill had just addressed the canadian parliament and he had made his way to the speakers chamber. he was looking for a drink, perhaps also for a cigar. and what he found instead was a photographer waiting for him. and more than that, because the photographer insisted on removing churchill's cigar. and then photogra

. there is some concern, though, about her condition, because she's been hospitalized at the king edward vii hospital in central london with what has been described as acute morning sickness. people i have spoken to who know about this say it's much worse than that. >> well, it is serious and the word you use, it's very debilitating. she's going to be confined to her hospital bed possibly for several days. prince william was there this afternoon. he left early this evening and i suspect he will be back there first thing tomorrow morning. he's obviously very concerned, as are both the royal family and of course, the middleton family as well. this is going to be a first grandchild for them. so yes, there is concern. of course this is very, very happy momentous news but what they are saying is she is going to need plenty of rest. we know that all of her public engagements have been suspended until further notice. i suspect we probably won't see the duchess carrying out any official engagements until possibly after christmas. >> right. and the other part of all this is fascinating, is the succes

appreciations of professor bickel who we've talked about and edward levy. >> guest: yeah, ed levy was the first professor i had in law school, and then he became dean of the law school, then he became provost and president of the university, and he became attorney general when i was solicitor general. so he was my first professor and my last attorney general. but i'll never forget the most vivid recollection i have of him is we came into class the first day and sat down, and he was looking at us waggling a big cigar and waggling his eyebrows, which he did. and finally, silence for a long time. and finally he said i'm not going to keep you long today. i'm not going to keep you long because i haven't got anything to say to you. i haven't got anything to say to you because you're too eager to talk to, and that made an impression on me. >> host: wow. judge bork, thank you so much. >> guest: well, i enjoyed chatting with you, gene. >> host: thank you. >> that was "after words," booktv's signature program in which authors of the latest nonfiction books are interviewed by journalists, public policymak
of, you know, john edwards having a mistress and that kind of thing where there is some huge bombshell that, you know, was not seen. >> sarah palin. >> what we found out, reinforced what we thought already. what was some interesting, fresh, new details. mitt romney, always had this tension, howie, in terms of how to talk about his personal life and his faith. we found out his campaign had a mormon document arian follow him around that they cut in 2010. they were concerned it was talking too much about romney's faith. it captured something that we knew are was there. >> you write that president obama stored out of a debate session and he had tensions with the staff who knew he was not up to par and that and joked that romney wasn't human enough to get elected. have you reported either of those things during the campaign, they would have been bombshells. >> that is true. i would like to think they're bo bombshells now, howie. one thing that was interesting in covering both sides of this story t wasn't, it wasn't as close as we thought. the two organization were not really compa
. prince william's wife is expected to stay in king edwards hospital for several days. >> reporter: good morning charlie. the news today seems to be better. after spending a second day at the hospital with his wife, prince william left her looking a lot more relaxed. kate is, quote, continuing to feel better and it seems that the prince was feeling a little better, too. kate is generally an active woman, a bit of a jock at school as she showed in her last public appearance before the onset of the illness. doctors say there's no reason she shouldn't continue to respond to treatment. while she's been a natural at the meet and greet part of the job, the most important part of her job has always been to provide heirs to the throne. that will get priority now. given the delicate start to her delicate condition, we're bound to see less of her over the next few months. >> i think the doctors are being incredibly cautious. they don't want to take any risks. this is going to be the future heir to the throne. it really depends on how she recovers. if she feels well i'm sure we'll see her out and a
